Is This Optio M50's Sensor Toast?
My parents own a Pentax Optio M50. About a month ago it took normal pictures. Pictures taken over the last two days, however, look bizarre. A sample image is shown below.
The image above is typical of what one can see in the LCD display in the rear of the camera. Histogram-like patterns appear over bright areas of the image. I have read through the manual and tried changing numerous mode, exposure, and display settings. There has been no change.
I figure that the sensor or some electronic component of the camera might have become non-functional.
Does anyone have any suggestions or thoughts on what to do about this problem? Is a camera replacement in order?
